Between being a mom of two, serving as executive producer for her family’s hit Hulu reality TV show “The Kardashians,” and co-founding the inclusive fashion brand Good American, Khloe Kardashian has a lot on her plate.
But that doesn’t mean you’ll catch him careless when it comes to gift giving during the holidays. (In fact, we doubt that word is even in her vocabulary.) We got a chance to get on the phone with the star to talk about the holiday season and her partnership with Rakuten, and she told us How seriously she takes her shopping.
“I love giving gifts and I try to give each person a really personal and unique gift, I think that’s the way you should shop,” Kardashian shared during an exclusive phone interview with Shop Today. ” “But it’s also torture because I’m literally going to go shopping as soon as Christmas is over. Maybe I’ll take two days off and then I’ll be fine, I’ll have to think about next year.”
Of course, anyone who’s kept up with her famous family can imagine that they’re not the easiest bunch to shop for. Of her sisters, she shares that it’s “really hard” to choose gifts for all of them, though she also says that Kim and Kylie are the easiest of the four.
“They just tell you what they want, and I love that,” Kardashian says. “Some people might think it’s rude, but I believe, no, just make it simple for me. They’ll give me a list and I love that. Kourtney and Kendall, they don’t give you any direction. . So sometimes it’s hard. I think they think it’s easy, but I just want you to tell me what you want.”
However she doesn’t take the art of gift giving for the holidays seriously. Her sister, Kourtney Kardashian Barker, recently welcomed a baby with her husband Travis Barker, and Kardashian revealed to us the sweet baby gift she gave him.
“It was a late baby present, it got stuck in customs for a long time. But I got him this really cute vintage Hermès wooden rocking horse,” Kardashian shared. “It’s really old school, but it’s like that. I think it’s a decor piece for the room, I don’t think it’s really something you use…it’s ridiculous, But I know it’s something he likes.”
In addition to choosing thoughtful gifts, the Kardashian family has plenty of fun traditions for this season. (We’re already wondering what her highly anticipated holiday card will look like this year.) Although Kardashian says her annual Christmas Eve party is her favorite.
“We look forward to it every year, we just dance all night long,” she says. “I’m not a big drinker anymore, and so I feel like this is my time, I have a glass of champagne. Have some glasses, I’m dancing, I’m in this safe place with my family.”
For anyone looking for a little inspiration, we asked Kardashian to tell us about some of her top gifts for the holiday season. Some of these products will be on sale during Rakuten’s “The 5 Deals Before Black Friday” event and you can learn more on the brand’s site.
From a hair tool that makes them feel like a “professional” to a cute gift for kids, here are their picks.
Shopping Diaries: Khloe Kardashian
Roller Derby Unicorn 2-in-1 Roller and Inline Adjustable Skates
Shopping for kids? These cute skates, which are adjustable for kids sizes 3 to 6, were featured as one of the favorites on their list.
As far as what her daughter, 5-year-old True Thompson, is asking for this year, Kardashian jokes, “What isn’t she asking for?” Turns out, he’s just like other kids his age. “She loves Bluey, it’s a cartoon character, an Australian dog that she loves. She’s still very interested in slime. She’s really interested in arts and crafts things, and so I I’m on her side. But it’s really messy – and spectacular. That, and “she wants another cat.”
Although the Kardashians may not completely agree on that last idea. “This is the first time I’ve had a cat, so now having two? I can’t be a cat lady. But we’ll see what happens.”
Fidus Large Motivational Water Bottle
Fitness is a big part of Kardashian’s personal routine, so we had to know if she had any good ideas about bringing a fitness lover into your life — and of course, she did.
She says she was given a one-gallon reusable water bottle. “And this sounds ridiculous, but it forces me to drink all the water throughout the day instead of refilling my little thermos, like a 12-ounce thermos, every two hours. And it forces me to drink my water. Inspires.” “My girlfriend gave me one for my birthday and she decorated the whole thing with rhinestones, so it was really cute,” says Kardashian.
You also can’t go wrong with some new workout apparel. “You can buy someone a great pair of sneakers or workout shoes or things like that,” she says. “I think I feel really good when I wear workout clothes or something. I feel better in the gym. It might sound really cheesy, but it motivates me.”
If you’re wondering if a fun reusable water bottle is the perfect gift for your fitness-loving friend (or for yourself), we’ve picked this top-rated option from Amazon.
Elemis The Pro-Collagen Cleansing Trio
When she doesn’t know what to give someone, Kardashian says anything in the “beauty or home” area is a pretty safe bet. “I mean beauty-wise, you don’t want it to be anti-aging or something, because then you’re indirectly telling someone something,” she jokes. “So just be careful what the beauty (product) says on the outside if you don’t want to be too specific… People are curious about beauty and willing to try new things, but sometimes People don’t want to spend money so it’s always a good gift.”
She included this set of Elemis Cleansing Balms on her gift list. The package comes with three of the brand’s best-selling cleansing balms, the original, a fragrance-free version and one with rose oleo extract that is said to be perfect for sensitive skin.
Macy’s Hotel Collection Lynx Faux Fur Throw
“Especially in the winter, I love really cozy things, things that are really soft and plush,” Kardashian says. “And I love the look of fake fur without the fur. It looks really nice and it’s huggable, but I think if you put it on a chair or chaise it adds glamor and drama to any room. adds up.”
Nice American Faux Leather Tube Mini Dress
“I love all my Good American clothes,” Kardashian says. “We have so many great things for the holidays, especially right now.”
Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler
Kardashian says the Dyson AirWrap is “very easy” to use. “I’m not that skilled at doing my own hair, and so the Dyson Airwrap was really a game changer for me, and it makes me look like a real hair professional and I’m not.”
